Amazon DynamoDB Streams provides API actions for accessing streams and processing stream records. To learn more about application development with Streams, see Capturing Table Activity with DynamoDB Streams ( in the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide.

The following are short descriptions of each low-level DynamoDB Streams action:

DescribeStream - Returns detailed information about a particular stream.

GetRecords - Retrieves the stream records from within a shard.

GetShardIterator - Returns information on how to retrieve the streams

record from a shard with a given shard ID.

ListStreams - Returns a list of all the streams associated with the current

AWS account and endpoint. The service client's operations are safe to be used concurrently. It is not safe to mutate any of the client's properties though.
